Postdoctoral Research Fellow

The main focus of my research lies in neural networks and synaptic computation. A fundamental question in neuroscience is how neural circuits utilise temporally and spatially patterned information in order to drive changes in synaptic connections.

Currently, I am studying the information transfer between different layers of cortex, using the mouse as an animal model.  I use patch-clamp electrophysiology to dissect out synaptic communication between the different cortical layers, which are known to contain different types of neuron. Understanding the transfer of information across cortical layers will help us better understand the types of computation performed by cortex.
